My Picks: Oscar Nominations 2019

Another year to mock the biggest award show in Hollywood, but here I am gearing up to watch my favorite movies get snubbed, and films I never got a chance to watch snag the grand prize. Either way, I am excited to see what the Academy Awards have in store for this year. I will try my best to give my picks for who I want to take home the Oscar which will come down to my enjoyment, knowledge, and attempt to put in an objective point of view for my picks. Some of my picks are who I hope wins, but some I may not be entirely in favor of, but sometimes you cannot deny a clear winner.
